to cut. no. no. don't cut that. one exception is obama care. and that is why stopping amnesty is important that remains the most important issue if amnesty goes through obama care will not be overturned. hispanics support obama care so please do not take your eye off the ball because obama care already passed in the senate they're trying to flip it through by not talking about it. politicians know as soon as we talk about it people will write and call and tell us we don't want obama care. as long as they don't say anything, we can slip it through the dark of night and republican contributors, you know, and mark zuckerbergs are going to give us money and screw the people who hate amnesty. as for this looming government shut down i've been listening to you talk about it on the radio along with other 14 million listeners and i have been dying to talk to you about this because i really don't think republicans should be on either side saying the other side is a monster or doing something horribly wrong. we all want to defund obama care. one side, i understand says had is going hurt

held their 40th vote to roll back president obama's health care law. every single gop lawmaker voted for it. voting to hurt health care and to take it away from millions of americans. >> this was a do nothing congress, and now it has gone to something worse. it's a make matters worse congress. we should not leave until we address the challenges that we face. >> that's right. this makes matters worse, congress. it is celebrating by going on vacation for the entire month of august. and when they get back, some of these republicans may actually try to shut down the government in order to kill obama care. today we also got some shocking news about the republican plan for food stamps. they were already calling for a $20 billion cut, which would kick about five million people off food stamps. now they want to double those cuts to $40 billion. it's stunning. these republicans aren't taking away money from big oil or big banks. they're literally taking food away from the poorest among us, the least fortunate. don't john boehner, eric cantor and these other republicans have any shame at all?
